Join a Slack workspace

A Slack workspace is made up of channels where team members can communicate and work together. When you join a workspace, you'll need to create a Slack account using your email address. 

If you plan to join more than one workspace, you'll need to create a separate account for each one. You can join as many workspaces as you'd like, and there's no limit to the number of Slack accounts that you can create with the same email address.  

Different ways to join a workspace:

  • Accept an email invitation from someone in the workspace
  • Join your company’s workspace automatically using your work email address
  • Find workspaces that you’re eligible to join by looking up your email address
